Buemi In Frame For Toro Rosso 2009 Seat
Sebastien Buemi is in the running for a seat at Scuderia Toro Rosso for 2009, team owner Gerhard Berger said at last weekend’s European Grand Prix.
Buemi, a GP2 race winner, is part of the Red Bull junior driver programme and is quite a talent in his current field, a risk taking on such a youngster but Berger reckons it is an educated risk.
He will get a test at Jerez next month.
“We are going to test him at Jerez,” Berger informed Autosport
“It is an evaluation for next year.”
“The ideal situation would be a young driver and an experienced one,” explained Berger. “We are putting everyone on the list who is free, but there is no clear opinion at this stage. We will take our time.”
Bruno Senna, another GP2 talent and Anthony Davidson along with Takuma Sato have been touted for seats at the team, but it is as yet unknown if current driver Sebastien Bourdais has done enough to secure a seat for 2009.
